Challenger - The Final Voyage Part 6 of 6

##
## Discovery Channel Video. The Presidential Commission concludes that NASA’s methods of reporting are at fault but no one person is at fault. The space program is stopped while safety is improved. Thiokol keeps their contract and spends $480 million to find a solution to the O ring problem.

The Space Shuttle

Learn about the space shuttle, how it was developed and how it takes off and lands in this short, computer animated video. The video briefly covers the following concepts: NASA and space shuttle planning, purpose of the space shuttle, shuttle design, orbiter, external fuel tank (ET), solid rocket boosters (SRB), blast off, re-entry, and landing. There is a ten question, fill in the blank quiz at the conclusion of the video.

The Space Race

This three minute video shows the U.S. competition with the U.S.S.R. for technological dominance spurred the U.S. on to the first-ever landing on the Moon. The video points out why science and math were given priority so that the US could catch the Russians in the Space Race. The moon was considered the major prize. A timeline is most valuable in using this video. Run time 02:58.

Inertia

The rise of Galileo and his fall from grace. Copernicus conjectured that the Earth spins on its axis and orbits around the sun. Considering its implications, a rather dangerous assumption that prompted rather risky questions: Why do objects fall to Earth rather than hurtle off into space? And in this heretical scheme of things in which the Earth wasn't at the center, where was God? Risk

Extreme Star Cluster Bursts Into Life - Hubblecast 09 (HD)

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured a spectacular image of NGC 3603, located about 20,000 light years away in the Carina spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. A giant nebula hosting one of the most prominent massive young clusters in the Milky Way. This is a splendid location for continued studies of stellar birth in star forming regions. This is a great video and good quality. The video is approp

Compact Group Galaxies

What are Compact Groups of Galaxies? These are densely packed galaxies spread throughout a small volume of space typically contains three to six galaxies.

Pendemonium - Apostrophes and Double Negatives part 8

Students learn about apostrophes and double negatives, as well as the Moon, Mars, and Milky Way when they follow the fast-paced adventures of a "pentastic" foursome into space. Seemingly ordinary writing implements named Florentina, Arturo, Buzz, and Penny come to life and try to stop a smelly Dark Marker from taking over the universe by solving clues based on good grammar.

Cute Dinosaur 4 - Drawing Tutorial

This video is a drawing tutorial for creating a cute cartoon dinosaur. Works to show space and volume. It is narrated well, and the steps of the drawing are very simple to follow. Any artist to be can follow the given steps and be successful.

Wonders of the Natural World - Great Barrier Reef

This video discusses the Great Barrier Reef. Video discusses where the reef is located, shows the reefs from outer space, what species live in the reefs, and how the reefs formed, how much the reefs are growing, and the effects of global warming and other threats. Video is of good quality, it is a short video and narrator talks fast. Video would be appropriate for children of all grade levels.

Indiana Basketball Team Movie Skit About Substitution In Algebra

This is an entertaining movie using model figures of the Indiana Basketball Team. They solve a substitution math problem in the clip when they have to decide which team members to substitute. University. There is no narration in this video. The figures talk using text bubbles.

Point, Line, Plane, and Space

Students learn the definitions of a point, a line, a plane, and space, as well as the symbols that are used in Geometry to represent each figure. Students also learn the definitions of collinear, coplanar, and intersection. Students are then given Geometric figures that are composed of points, lines, and planes, and are asked true/ false and short answer questions about the given figures.

Intersecting Lines

Students learn the definitions of a point, a line, a plane, and space, as well as the symbols that are used in Geometry to represent each figure. Students also learn the definitions of collinear, coplanar, and intersection. Students are then given Geometric figures that are composed of points, lines, and planes, and are asked true/ false and short answer questions about the given figures.

Proving Lines are Parallel

If two lines are cut by a transversal and corresponding angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. If two lines are cut by a transversal and alternate interior angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. If two lines are cut by a transversal and same-side interior angles are supplementary, then the lines are parallel. Students are then asked to determine which lines are parallel in given figures using information about the angles in the figures.

Definition of Parallel Lines

Students learn the definitions of parallel lines, skew lines, parallel planes, and transversals, and are asked to identify these types of lines/planes in given figures. Students are also asked to identify alternate interior angles, same-side interior angles, and corresponding angles. Always, sometimes, and never questions are included in this lesson.

Rays

Students learn the definitions of a segment, a ray, and length, as well as the symbols that are used in Geometry to represent each figure. Students also learn the definitions of an endpoint, opposite rays, a coordinate, and a number line. Students are then given geometric figures that are composed of segments and rays, and are asked true/ false questions about the given figures. Students are also given number lines, and are asked short answer questions about the given number lines. Students are

G Is For Giggle

Short, classic Sesame Street clip about the letter "G." (:36)

Pendemonium - Apostrophes and Double Negatives part 3

Students learn about apostrophes and double negatives, as well as the Moon, Mars, and Milky Way when they follow the fast-paced adventures of a "pentastic" foursome into space. Seemingly ordinary writing implements named Florentina, Arturo, Buzz, and Penny come to life and try to stop a smelly Dark Marker from taking over the universe by solving clues based on good grammar.

How do climate changes in Greenland and Antartica affect weather for the rest of the world?

How do climate changes in Greenland and Antarctica affect weather for the rest of the world?" Alan Rodger – British Antarctic Survey. Addressing polar region study as a whole, the interactions between the physical, chemical, biological, solar, human, space and solar, marine life, climate, geological aspects. Run time 03:39.

The Electric Field

Michael Faraday's vision of lines of constant force in space laid the foundation for the modern idea of the field of force. Electric fields of static charges; Gauss' law and the conservation of flux.

If the speed of light is to be the same for all inertial observers (as indicated by the Michelson-Morley experiment) the equations for time and space are not difficult to find. But what do they mean? They mean that the length of a meter stick, or the rate of ticking of a clock depends on who measure it.
